    How to add another dropdown dynamically?

    Asked by darje on March 29, 2014 at 08:58 AM

    I have a list of spare parts in a dropdown. So a user selects 1 part and inputs an amount desired in a separate text box. 

    But how do I offer an option for the user to be able to add an extra dropdown and text box if he desires to order 1 more part from my store?

    it would be something like Dynamic fields plugin but for dropdown menus.

     

    thanks

    You can use conditional formatting to show a second drop down menu in case needed. Like so:

    To create the condition: On the top toolbar click on the Conditions icon, then choose Show /Hide a form field:

    My condition basically states that if the user answer Yes to the Question "Do you want to add another item" then the second dropdown field will be shown:
